rhel-6-server-rpms. This requirement also means any third-party configurations or software that is not directly necessary for the direct operation of the server cannot be installed. This restriction includes hardening or other non-Red Hat security software.
Procedure 2.2. Installing the Red Hat Update Infrastructure packages on the Red Hat Update Appliance Server
- Download the ISO from the Customer Portal.
- Change the hostname of the Red Hat Update Appliance Server and all CDS instances to a resolvable fully qualified domain name (FQDN).Change the hostname in your current session:
# hostname new_hostnameTo make the hostname change persistent, edit
/etc/sysconfig/networkusing your preferred text editor:
NETWORKING=yes HOSTNAME=new_hostname ...
ImportantIf the hostname is unset and its value is reported as
localhost, you will not be able to proceed. In this guide, the example hostname for Red Hat Update Appliance is rhua.example.com, and the example hostname for the first CDS instance is cds01.example.com.
- Mount the ISO:
# mkdir -p /mnt/example # mount -o loop <ISO> /mnt/example
- Change directory to /mnt/example.
# cd /mnt/example
- On the Red Hat Update Appliance Server, run
install_RHUA.shto install Red Hat Update Appliance packages.
